It’s been a good while since a wrote a blog but as it’s October and World Menopause Day is in a couple of weeks I thought I’d up date everyone on what is happening with myself, Bourne2care and of course menopause.

Over the last few months our lives have changed in so many ways. Many people have more mental health and when mixed with menopause well; you can imagine. I’m aware how many women want private menopause consultations with me but just couldn’t afford the expense. I therefore reduced my prices for on line menopause/HRT consultations and I am pleased to say more women have booked appointments with me. This special offer will end of Sunday 18th October for World Menopause Day. If you would like to book an appointment, please do it now!
